The study of Geometry includes the detailed knowledge of different shapes and figures we come across in our daily life. In Math geometry is basically related to the different shapes and sizes of the different object we look around us. These shapes can be in the two dimensions or even in three dimensions. When we talk about the figures in two dimensions we look at the basic shapes, which start with the study of the point, followed by the line, line segments and the rays. These are the basic terms and the elements of the geometrical studies. Now when we proceed further we find the different shapes formed by the different line segments and their measures, which help us to calculate the area and the perimeters of these shapes.
While plotting any geometrical figures we need to take care of the accuracy of the shapes and the sizes of the figures. For this we need to have a deep knowledge of the angles and the lengths of the line segments. Line segments when joined together at different measures of the angles change the shapes of the closed figures. Let us start with the Triangles. Any of the Triangles can be formed by joining 3 different line segments at the three different vertexes. If the angles formed by joining the three line segments at three different points are same, i.e. 60 degree each, then the triangle so formed is called an equilateral triangle. On another hand, if the triangle has one of the angles as a right angle, then we say that the right angled triangle is formed. On another hand if one of the angle is greater than 90 degrees then we say that an obtuse angled triangle is formed. Here we say that different shapes are taken by the triangles just by change in the measure of the angles of the triangle. Also we must remember that the sum of the angles of the triangle is always 180 degrees, so if the measure of one of the angle increases, and then automatically it is going to affect the measure of the angles of other angles of the triangle.
Further we come across different other polygons, which can be in the shapes of the quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons and many other different shapes, we look around us.
To measure the length of the sides of the park, the boundary of the fence required around any park or field, the area of the room on which the flooring is to be done, these all the real life applications of the geometry in our daily life.
Whenever we talk about the real life applications of the geometrical study, we say that it is unlimited and endless. Once we know about the different properties of different geometrical shapes, we can form and understand different formulas to get the numerical related output of the different figures. If we need to find the boundary of the figures, we will find the perimeter of these figures and if we need to find the enclosed area, then we find the area of different geometrical figures.
A polygon is a closed figure drawn with the help of line segments only. In other words, we can say that polygons are rectilinear figures. The line segments with the help of which they are drawn are called the sides or edges of the polygon. The ...Read More
Geometry is the branch of Mathematics in which we deal with different types of shapes. The concept begins with a point. We define point as a dot made with the help of a sharp object. A point is always denoted by a capital letter of En...Read More
For calculation of area of triangle heron's formula can be used but this method is suitable when lengths of all three sides are given.
Let x, y, z the length of three sides of triangle then the formula is given by;
